    FANTASY FOOTBALL

    Now I have your attention...

    Anyone who didn't get a PM about a Fantasy Football league between us guys who wants find out more and play in it can PM me.
    I'm up for it, played pretty every year the past 3 seasons. None of this wussy draft picking though. Live draft, random order. Draft isn't even relevant most of the time, it's your ability to trade with other teams and pick up bargains in free agents each week.

    it's promising you say that. i've been playing for three years now and every year nobody ever makes trades, it's so frustrating..add that to the guys that draft their team on auto-pilot and then never change their line up all season etc. hopefully i'll be part of a proper league this year!

    This is true I guess it depends on the people you are with.

    Usually people get scared if a guy gets a bit injured or under-performs early on so are willing to trade. A good tactic is to take a friends favourite player high in the draft knowing that they will trade you anything to get that one player.

    Free agents can be a godsend if you can spot the talent, and act quick enough. Benjarvus Green-Ellis for example, picked me up a ton of points last season.

    free agents are the way forward. in the past i've picked up mike vick, miles austin, danny woodhead and lance moore..very lucrative indeed

    Normally you got 10 teams right and about 18-20 players per team so anyone who isn't drafted is a free agent, normally because they aren't worth owning but if you suffer an injury or one of your players is a bust then you are gonna wanna drop them and pick up a free agent who offers more to your team, thereby making the guy you drop a free agent. Sometimes players no one expects to be beasts will not get drafted and can be picked up as free agents as well i.e. Peyton Hillis last year and brandon jackson was a popular FA pick up after Ryan Grant got hurt week 1...

    In a satdnard league Free Agent priority usually goes to the worst teams I think and there is like a waiver order of who can pick up players but the leagues I am in use a FAB system where every team has a budget to spend on free agents and if you wana pick someone up you enter how much you are willing to spend on them into a blind auction and whoever bids the most gets the player, this is a bit more advanced though because it can be difficult to judge prices for newer players

    I will play fantasy football please any chance of a keepr league make it a bit more interesting ?
    Added to the list.

    We will see what everyone else thinks about a keeper league. Personally, I prefer a new league each year, but it's not all about me.

    Once we have enough people down on the list, we will then discuss whether to use a keeper league or not.

    Cheers for the interest.
